Sponsored Research Office

The Sponsored Research Office (SRO) is located within the Office of the Provost and Dean of the Faculty. The primary goal of the SRO is to assist faculty members and staff in the process of applying for outside funding and in the administration of grants and awards. We work closely with other offices on campus to reach this goal, including the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations and the Finance Office. All grant proposals to external funding sources must first be reviewed and approved by the Sponsored Research Office prior to submission. We oversee the submission of online grant proposals when Smith College is identified as the applicant.


Bill E. Peterson, Associate Provost and Dean for Academic Development, also serves as the Director of Sponsored Research. He may be reached at 413-585-3000 in College Hall 206. Emily Robinson is the Sponsored Research Office Administrator and the primary contact for the Office. She may be reached at 413-585-3010 in College Hall 303.
